American soldiers are upset about the treatment given to Howard Dean’s deceased brother after being found by a government agency whose job it is to recover the bodies of American soldiers killed in war, Drudge reported yesterday.
And for good reason–Dean’s brother never served. He was merely a civilian killed by the Vietcong while touring Laos with a friend. But that didn’t stop him from receiving preferential treatment.
Active duty soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines are upset over being forced take part in a military repatriation ceremony today for remains believed to be those of the non-military brother of presidential candidate Howard Dean, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
JPAC was pressured to not only recover his brother’s remains, but to bump Dean’s recovery over numerous other MIA’s who actually died fighting for their country, a well-placed military source tells the DRUDGE REPORT.
Not quite nepotism, but close enough.
